08/31/2012 Fantastic Friday!

Hello everyone and welcome back on this Friday at the end of the month. I can't believe August is already over; it just seemed to blast by. My mom was talking to me about Christmas presents last night, and I'm just not ready for that conversation. My general rule is that if it's not past either my birthday or Halloween, Christmas doesn't exist yet for me no matter what the store say. Anyway, let's get to something more important, shall we?

Today I bring you 'Destiny Can Be a Real Pain In the Ass' by William Hrdina. It's a short story with a kind of long title about a man who's supposed to be the savior of humanity, but he just isn't good at doing that. It's not that he's a supervillain or a bad person, he just isn't very good at being the magnificent person all the prophecies say he'll be.

Have you ever wondered how you'll make the world better? What if you were born and that's what you were told you'd do: Make the world better. This is the story about a man who was told just that, and he was raised to be all kinds of great, but no matter what he did nothing worked. He was just an average person to the chagrin of everyone who was trying to teach him the highest forms of education, and also teach him to perform miracles. Now as an old man, he wonders what he can actually do to save humanity.

I like this story because it shows what happens when a person is brought up being told they will do great things and the frustration that comes when they can't live up to those expectations. At the very least in their own mind. It also gives insight to the pressures someone goes through when that is the world they are raised in; they don't have a choice, it's just their life and their life is supposed to be special.

 'Destiny Can Be a Real Pain In theAss' is available for FREE on Smashwords, and is relatively short, so I recommend picking it up and reading it during a break or lunch. It's incredibly interesting and while I'm not 100% sure what's going on at the top of the cover, it's a good story that I think you would all enjoy.

Thanks everyone for stopping by again. I am tired, but I'll live. I'm still in the process to adjusting to my schedule, and while part of me isn't sure it'll ever happen, I will persevere. Luckily I have a three day weekend to recover, so with that being said there will not be a post on Monday. I will be back Wednesday, so please check in at that time for the latest post. Until then I hope everyone has a great and fun weekend!
